    Went in with a group of three and we all had very high expectations based on the way locals and other people talked about the restaurant. Unfortunately, we were most disappointed in the food. I am usually not picky and eat anything and I don’t mind dry chicken, however the chicken cutlet was so dry you could barely cut it. The fish fry was decent, but the Cole slaw was basically just straight cabbage and made my fries and fish soggy. The scenery was nice, the staff was friendly, and our server Marianna was very kind and helpful and made our experience better. The drinks were alright, but overall I would not return.

    My wife and I visited the sandbar restaurant while we were staying at the lake house hotel this past week. It was nice that we got chips and pico included. As seems to be the case with many restaurants in upstate New York, this is Pepsi country, so one is not able to order a Coke. The food offerings were good; the salad was average at best, really nothing special and was seven dollars for a side salad. The lobster roll came with plenty of lobster meat and tasted wonderful. The french fries were not anything to write home about. For a pricey restaurant one might expect the french fries to not be stale. The lobster risotto had a good amount of lobster, but did lack creaminess. I did like the zoodles and basil pesto that topped the risotto, and while a strange combo, it worked. Also worth noting that it could just have been an off-night, but we seemed to have been served and visited less by the waiter since we were not ordering alcohol (my wife is pregnant). Patrons ordering alcohol seemed to get more frequent service. The view was wonderful and while seated outside there seem to always be a pleasant breeze coming off the lake.

    The menu on Google needs to be updated. The prices are very high from last year. I had the fish fry which was relatively good. The haddock was bland, the coleslaw made my fries wet and soggy, over all it was ok but not $30 worth. Picture is after I removed the very watery coleslaw...

    Absolutely beautiful view but the food leaves much to be desired. Portions are small for the amount of money you pay. Your best bet is the hamburger if you want to somewhat satisfy your hunger. Be prepared to pay a lot and be rushed out. I really wanted to love it. Oh, also wanted to add that my first attempt at eating at the Sand Bar was during 4th of July weekend. We had no reservations but the restaurant had many empty tables. We were told that it was fully booked and we couldn’t order food at the bar but we could buy drinks. So we bought drinks and sat by the pier. I could not help but notice that an hour later there were still many tables empty. So I approached the hostess again. They said that all of those tables were reserved for 8:30 pm (it’s about 7:00 pm). After some insistence the “manager” said if they sat us now we would have to be done with our dinner quickly. Really? You will rush paying customers out? The more I think about, the more I dislike this place!!

    Met friends there for dinner. We are from Florida and had not been here before but our friends had. I ordered fish fry. It looked huge but that was because of the amount of batter. The fish tasted good but the batter left a lot to be desired. The fries were okay, there was barely any coleslaw. The view was great but $30 for a fish fry is awful. We can get a really good fish fry , with great fries and a good amount of Coleslaw for under $20 in Florida. I rated a 3 based on view only but would not go back again. Average food and overpriced.
